Understanding How a Global Workplace Revolution Just Disrupted the Way to Attract, Retain and Engage Your Best People

[ The Keynote Presentation ]


For the first time in history, Millennials have become the biggest generational cohort in the workforce. Gen Y and Gen Z workers are also growing as a percentage of the total workforce. Simultaneously, the Covid-19 pandemic has strained and tested the limits of the employer-employee relationship… driving what we currently know as The Great Resignation.

This unprecedented combination of factors just disrupted the future of work.

A global workplace revolution has disrupted how leaders attract, retain and engage their best people.

Researchers are only now beginning to understand that there has been a powerful shift in the workforce's psychological center of gravity. In the months ahead, organizations will tap into unprecedented frameworks for leadership, teamwork and collaboration—all because of a new-generation mandate for a deeper sense of purpose, wonder, authenticity, connection and collaboration.

Welcome to what leadership strategist Ray East calls the "Shared Meaning Economy.”

Ray’s presentation is a forward-looking keynote that positions organizational leaders and teams to successfully navigate the Age of Shared Meaning. The research-based program gives leaders and teams a chance to explore the non-obvious rules, insights and opportunities that will characterize the future of leadership and teamwork:

  • Why the Covid-19 Pandemic and the Turnover Tsunami have accelerated the arrival of the Shared Meaning Economy and the future of work
  • How the biggest demographic cohorts in organizations today are redefining the psychological center of gravity—disrupting the way that leaders unlock loyalty, power and engagement from teams in the modern economy
  • How most organizations will suffer in their race to attract and retain talent because they cling to a failing workplace value proposition instead of generating a new one [ Meaningful · As One ]
  • Why innovating methods to amplify worker voices, values, purpose and connection will become a basic skillset for successful leaders in the age of shared meaning
  • How world-class leaders are becoming catalysts for emerging shared meaning economy, helping their organizations to be the employers of choice for years to come
